J. Edgar and Clyde, back in the day. (File photo)

So they've finally cast the HBO movie of "Too Big to Fail," brazenly ignoring our star suggestions. Come on, Lyle Lovett as Tim Geithner? That was a brilliant idea! Instead, they're going with Billy Crudup. Also, Ed Asner as Warren Buffett. . . William Hurt as Hank Paulson. . . Paul Giamatti as Ben Bernanke. See the rest of the financial-crisis cast in Lisa de Moraes's column.

Meanwhile, Clint Eastwood has signed Leo di Caprio to play J. Edgar Hoover, a long-serving FBI director with a secret! However, Joaquin Phoenix will not, repeat, not play Hoover's aide and maybe-lover Clyde Tolson. Sorry.

And boom! "Transformers 3" shooting on the Mall gets off to an awesome start when a Hollywood Autobot hits a real-life cop car. Whoops. Go see the video at Dr. Gridlock.
